[[!img LV2.3-October.png alt="L-10 Mission patch" class="picture"]]

**Date:** TBD Spring 2013

## Improvement Goals for Spring

### Major Initiatives

 - Power Distribution Board
    - Break out V_Bat to all subsystems
    - break out comms (CAN, USB) as well
    - Enable pins?
 - Battery Board
    - Charge Balance
    - Fuel Gauge
 - CAN implementation for IMU
 - LTC API
    - And Ground software
    - Awesome launch button
    - No gel cel
 - Ground Software
    - Build PSAS MCC
 - Roll Control on FC
 - FC Rocket Ready based on real contstraints
    - Requirements Documentation
 - RocketTracks
 - Baro sensor
 - Test ground side electronics, RasPi
 - GPS RF Front End
 - Update Camera

### Technical Nitpicks

 - Test Umbilical?
    - Shorten signal pins?
 - More thought out cabling
    - Standard wires?
 - Test GPS
 - Connectors
    - 3D Print?
 - USB connector on Alpha
 - LTC shutdown cleanly
